Columbia, Ohio (USA) -- Tibetan Monk Champa Lhunpo, a member of the Dalai Lama’s monastery, held talks with students in George Frissell’s Classical Ideas and World Religions class today at Hickman High School.

Lhunpo told the class Buddhism is becoming more popular because of its openness. It “goes well with other religions,” he said, comparing religion to a buffet of choices.

His visit was part of Frissell’s series of guest speakers, who also include Robert Baum, who provided information on indigenous African religions; Vellore Gopalaratnam, who explained Hinduism; and Philip Clart, an MU religious studies professor who plans to speak on Confucianism.
